Might Friday Night Lights have found its next Tim Riggins?

Following the departures of series regulars Zach Gilford, Taylor Kitsch and Jesse Plemmons, the drama has added Grey Damon to its fifth season cast.

The actor - who has appeared on episodes of 90210 and Greek - will portray Hastings Ruckle, an East Dillon basketball player who joins the Lions as a wide receiver.

In casting for the role, producers sought a “super, super hot guy who must be over 6 feet tall with a strong athletic build," as the characters possesses a “dark, hippie, party-guy vibe. Look for Hastings to be one of the more popular kids at school.

Friday Night Lights debuts its fourth season on NBC on May 7.

Friday Night Lights Quotes

"When Jason Street went down the first game of the season, everybody wrote us off. Everybody. And yet here we are at the championship game. Forty thousand people out there have also written us off. But there are a few out there who still believe in you."

Eric Taylor

We will all at some time in our lives, fall. Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable, and we will all at some point in our lives, fall, we will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts, that what we have is special, that it can be taken from us, and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.

Eric Taylor
